Subject: Middling married-couple sit-com
OTR sit-coms that were popular in their day tend to come across as rather weak today, and this one seems to me to fall right in that groove. This weekly Friday show stars Richard Denning as George Cugat (huh?), a banker married for ten years to Liz (Lucille Ball), a socialite now a housewife who is hopeless in the kitchen. Many of the jokes fall flat even before the live studio audience, although they clearly enjoy the show as a whole.

For me, the principal charm is in hearing the very young Lucy before she became *Lucy*, already luminous and working miracles with mediocre material.

The first two episodes, despite their titles, are duplicates of the third, "The Portrait Artist".
